Why we are supporting NHS Nightingale Hospital Training Centre

GoodGym are supporting Team London by connecting our members to the support effort in the set-up of the NHS Nightingale Hospital in East London.

This new hospital is being opened to provide support for thousands more patients with coronavirus (COVID-19). They are asking for volunteers to provide a friendly welcome and support the induction of NHS staff at the training centre based at the O2 Arena. This volunteer role will therefore take place at the O2 Arena in North Greenwich.

This role is to support the induction and training of hospital staff and so there will not be any contact with patients, relatives or treatment areas of the hospital. The role will include checking in new staff, providing directions, supporting the distribution of uniforms, assisting NHS induction staff and offering a friendly welcome to the staff who will go on to provide life-saving medical treatment to patients with coronavirus.

What are the volunteer roles?

They will be looking for volunteers for several roles, including the following:

  • Arrivals and welcome - this will involve welcoming NHS staff, checking ID and wayfinding (please note it will involve standing and may be outside or inside the building)

  • Induction support - this may involve supporting trainers to induct NHS staff, ensuring training rooms are set-up and welcoming staff

Roles will be allocated on arrival at the site.

When are volunteers needed?

Volunteers are needed NOW! It is vital that the NHS Nightingale Hospital is up and running as soon as possible to save thousands of lives.

There will be morning and afternoon shifts available for volunteers for at least the next two weeks. Shifts are already live on the portal, so you can sign up as soon as you log in. More shifts are released weekly.

Who can volunteer?

Your safety is our priority and as such volunteers must be fit and well with no symptoms of coronavirus. Those in higher-risk groups including those over 70, pregnant or with underlying medical conditions will not be able to take up this role. Most tasks can be undertaken while social distancing and volunteers will receive guidance and training to support them to volunteer safely. No personal protective equipment is required to carry out this role.

Food will be provided, and travel expenses will be paid.
